Similar to this topic and brandons answer here, i now post this as a feedback / feature request.
We can still use the badword filter system to replace a "badword" with a (html or bbcode) link, but this also acts on the topic titles and we see the html/bbcode codes in the topic title. I reported this here as a bug, but matt classified it as "not a bug".
So the badword system should become a little rework so that the replacements with html and bbcodes only replace the text, not the html/bbcode or it would be great to have a similar system to the badword system for replacements including the thing with the topic titles.
The badword filter was really designed to catch swear words and replace them.
What you're suggesting is something completely different and I think it's wrong to look at extending the badwords filter to stuff in additional functionality.
Can you give me a few examples of what you'd like to see? I remember your bug and topic but I'm not very clear on what you want to achieve.
What i want to achieve?The badword filter works very well to replace a text with a new one (badword -> goodword :D).The badword filter also works very well to replace a text with a new one INCLUDING bbcode or html code (badword -> goodword including a link, e.g. to the boardrules).But at the moment there are a problem: The filter also works on topic titles (which is correct and good), but if you replace a "badword" with a new word including bbcode or html code, the code show in the topic title:
Now there are a few options:
For me, i use the system to replace "IPS" with a link to your IP.Board page, IP.Content to the IP.Content page etc... There are a lot of options to use those system, maybe also to show only "crosslinks" (wiki style links).
[*]Rename the "badword filter" system to a "Replacement system" or something else and filter the bbcode and html code in topic titles
[*]Only filter the bbcode and html code in topic titles
[*]Create a similar system to the badword system (maybe only copy the system) and call it "Replacements" to replace texts (not badwords -> goodwords).
